We are so excited to announce our MOM (Motivating Mom of the Month) for November! Each month we will take a moment to honor one of our local FIT4MOM Montgomery County Moms for her efforts to lead a healthy lifestyle and for her dedication to the program. This month we honor Pia Chirinos!
"All it took was suggesting to Pia one time that she should try Stroller Strides. She came the very next time and has been a regular since! Pia had to take a break from classes over the summer when her older kids were out of school but she was back the very first day that schools started this Fall! She and her adorable daughter, Abby share the warmest smiles with their Fit4Mom friends and have become vital parts of Our Village! ~Instructor Claire
